Newly elevated cabinet miniser Prakash Javadekar, who will take charge of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) on Thursday, has said improving the quality of education was the "biggest challenge".
"Education provide meaning and value to life. The biggest challenge today is to improve the quality of education. Every parent work hard to send their children to school. Their only desire is that the children should get quality education," Javadekar said.
"Our job is to provide quality education and I'm hopeful that we will achieve it with the support of everyone. Modiji has a vision about education and we will work towards it."
The minister said education touches the "heart" of every individual and is not limited to a particular caste, creed or religion.
"Education is a national agenda and it touches every house and heart. Poor parents do more exertion to give good education to their children because they know that education only can bring transformation and that's what we want to achieve," Javadekar told the media here.
Javadekar replaces Smriti Irani, who after serving as the HRD minister for two years, will take charge of the Ministry of Textiles.
